    Give some thought to alternate materials too... I've used Tusq on some ukes, and experimented with brass and glass, too.

    Or do a G7 moved up one fret and wrap your thumb around the neck to get the fourth string/second fret. I use the thumb wrap on several chords - an old guitar habit. Works well for me.

    Thanks. I tend to play songs in C in the key of F because I learned those shapes from playing guitar and sometimes it's just easier to go with the muscle memory than transpose the keys.

    I don't think those chords are correct. I recall it as a minor variation on 12-bar blues. Something like this:

    F
    I'm going fishin...
    Bb
    Won't you come fishin' too?
    F
    Bet your life...
    G7 ...

    I bought one. It cracked soon thereafter. Then it got worse. I gave the parts away.

    Never again.

    Odetta did it back in the early 1960s. My personal favourite version was by Gordon Lightfoot in the mid-late 60s, but by then it had become a folk song. Ritchie Havens did a version at Woodstock.
